Eduard Folayang secured a huge win in the ONE Super Series when he outclassed John Wayne Parr in a Muay-Thai bout at ONE X. The former ONE Championship Lightweight champion got back to winning ways with the performance and now, he has his eyes set on the next chapter in ONE Super Series.

In a recent interview, Folayang noted that he is looking for a showdown with Sage Northcutt under Muay-Thai rules.

“I still have a purpose in mixed martial arts but if they want karate versus wushu, probably Sage Northcutt. He is a karate guy and I am a wushu guy probably we can fight in Muay Thai rules,” Folayang said (via GMA Network)

A former UFC fighter, Sage Northcutt signed with ONE Championship a few years back and suffered a KO loss in his ONE Championship debut back in 2019. The 26-year-old holds a professional MMA record of 11-3 to his name and was on a three-fight winning streak prior to his ONE Championship loss.

Folayang, further went on to add that he will be focussing on his recovery first before exploring future options.

“I have been with a lot of Muay Thai guys. I took a lot of advice from different people especially my coach and other athletes. For me it's just normal, the striking department is just about the rules and how to use my elbows and knees. I am looking forward [to fighting Sage Northcutt]. First I need to recover, assess myself, go with my team, and soon probably in the middle of this year or the third quarter I can come back again,” Folayang added.
